Now that you've seen what spring looks like at Beckley, Stacey Todd, TenOverSix and Satine, it's time to check in with the style-setters over at Planet Blue Beverly Hills to see what seasonal treats that have up their boho-chic sleeves.
To make sure that we're all channelling the right fest-ready vibes, Planet Blue fashion director Jennifer Kassell has whipped up a few key trends to replicate, accompanied by a handful of in-store items.
High Neck, Low Back: "This killer combo is probably my favorite trend at the moment. I think there is nothing more elegant then a woman's décolletage. Showing off your shoulders with a high neck is classy and chic. Pairing this with a bare back is striking and sexy with a classic touch."
Retro Lace: "Feminine touches of vintage-inspired lace add texture and a subtle flirty feel to any look while still remaining edgy. Lace works best when it is unlined. These pieces are great for layering over and under. Lace is a theme that has been present in fashion since the Victorian era, so I don't think it's going out of style anytime soon!"
Two-Piece Looks: The two-piece is a practical investment for a trend. It takes minimal effort when putting an outfit together early in the morning and will work in the evening with a great statement jacket. The beauty of the two-piece is that you also have the option of wearing each item with other pieces, opening up Pandora's Box of options."
